Rising values on small 60s german cars? Anybody else see

the 63 VW 23 window deluxe microbus cross the block for $198,000 at Barrett Jackson Orange County on Saturday? Unusual color combination (ivory over gray) and admittedly beautifully restored, but $198K?

I saw that.........I could not believe my eyes. But, I dont really think it has any bearing on other vintage german cars at all.

But...sheeesh..

..the restorer was just like so befuddled. It was a wonderful restore job. I cant imagine there being more than, what, 50 to 70 k in that restore?....Im guessing.
